Signature Dining Restaurants!

1) Be Our Guest

One of Magic Kingdom’s newest and most popular establishments, Be Our Guest is located in Beast’s Castle in Fantasyland. In our opinion it is definitely the best, if not one of the best Magic Kingdom Restaurants. It features three dining rooms, respectively themed after Beast and Belle’s ballroom, the west wing, and the castle gallery.

The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus with French and American meal options. Breakfast and Lunch are counter service but you still need to make a reservation. It is the nicest counter service in the parks and we try to go every Disney World trip  Signature dishes include the famous “grey stuff,” served in a white chocolate Chip cup with edible pearls. Try the Mickey-shaped meatloaf for kids during lunch service. If you are on the Dining Plan breakfast and lunch are considered a counter service and dinner is 2 table service credits. Reservations are a must for this location. Check out the Be Our Guest Menu Here!

4) Jungle Skipper Canteen – Best Magic Kingdom Restaurant Atmosphere

Located near the ever-popular Jungle Cruise attraction, Jungle Skipper Canteen serves fare influenced by Asia, Africa, and Central America. While the food is some of the best at Magic Kingdom, my husband is there for one thing, the corny jokes. Yes, the wait staff offers the same style of corny jokes as you would receive onboard the Jungle Cruise.

If you’re tastebuds are craving something exotic, this is your spot! Lunch and dinner menus are available at this establishment that will make you forget you’re not lost somewhere in the Amazon rainforest.

Signature dishes include the Falls Family Falafel, featuring an exclusive recipe of chickpeas, garlic, onions, lemon juice, edamame hummus (it’s incredible). The Hardy Har Char Siu Pork, which includes a specially marinated cut of meat, jasmine rice, and seasonal veggies is a hit, and my son devoured the strip steak. Reservations are recommended for this location. This location is 1 table service credit for the Disney Dining Plan

5) Liberty Tree Tavern

Situated in Liberty Square, the Liberty Tree Tavern is an eatery with historic flair. Modeled after traditional New England inns from the 1700s, the establishment is designed to pay homage to the Founding Fathers, with six dining areas each honoring a different early American. 

This was my favorite place to eat as it used to be character dining back in the day. All the character were dressed up in colonial clothes. Although the characters are no longer there the food is still quite delicious. 

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at this establishment. The feast is served family style and dishes include the Patriot’s Platter, which features roasted turkey breast and pork, pot roast, mashed potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, and macaroni and cheese, and Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake for dessert. Reservations are recommended for this location. You can check out the menu here!

The Classics

6) The Plaza Restauran

Reminiscent of Victorian Era-eateries, The Plaza Restaurant features an elegant Art Nouveau theme without feeling pretentious or stuffy in any way. As a matter of fact, because it’s located on Main Street USA, it’s a great place to dine before the nightly fireworks or any shows you want to watch at the castle.
